"Fibromyalgia - Dr deserves a big thank you"

About: Royal Derby Hospital / Rheumatology

(as the patient),

At Royal Derby Hospital rheumatology clinic I was seen by Dr Garner who was excellent. She explained about the disease and what treatment I need. As I am a lead operating department practitioner I was pleased that she respected this and spoke to me on appropriate level because I have some knowledge of Fibromyalgia. She had to ring me a week after I'd had some tests done with bad news - a swab taken revealed I was carrying MRSA. she explained about Eradication Treatment and what I had to do to get rid of it. Basically Dr Warner was great, very understanding and put me at ease even when telling me firstly that I have Fibromyalgia and then that I needed treatment for MRSA. She deserves a big THANK YOU - keep up the good work.
